What is Viniyoga?

The lineage followed at Bamboo Asana Yoga is Viniyoga

Time magazine said this about Viniyoga:

“(it) is the most highly customized form of yoga. Viniyoga teachers cater stretching positions to individual student’s needs and abilities. Function is focused upon over form, with an emphasis on integrating the flow of movement of the breath with the movement of the spine.”

Yoga and it’s practice renews, invigorates, and heals the body. This includes stretching and strengthening the muscles, joints, and spine and directing blood and oxygen to the internal organs.

The word yoga comes from the Sanskrit word yuj meaning “yoke” or union. The word hatha means the sun and moon. Sun energy is thought of as “yang” and is associated with more masculine energy. Moon energy is thought of as “yin” and is associated with more feminine energy. Yoga is the practice that unites these two energies and balances our bodies and minds.
